Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Ficurinia On Jan 28, 2009, Ficurinia from Portland, OR wrote:

My mom purchased this plant from an online source and we were shocked that it ended up looking as great at the image in the catalog in its first year! I watched it all summer and it was beautiful. It exploded with delicate lace-like purple blooms and it did attract bees and butterflies. Lastly, it has the most beautiful seeds I've ever seen. They are very small, but en masse, they look like liquid gold. I cannot wait to have more and I highly recommend it.
